A luxurious matcha chocolate set that is packed with 24% matcha chocolate made from nine different tea cultivars. As everything is done in-house at our office in Wazuka Town, we were able to produce this new unique approach to matcha tasting just for you.

In Japan there are approximately more than a 100 cultivated varieties of tea. We specially selected these nine tea cultivars for their unique and delicious characteristics. With each bite you will get to savour the fine and rich taste of matcha that was harvested from Wazuka Town during the first flush of the year.

Matcha flavours included in the box: Yabukita, Gokou, Asanoka, Samidori, Sayamakaori, Okumidori, Asahi, Kanayamidori, and Tenmyo.

Each piece of chocolate was handcrafted using 24% of pure matcha powder, which is equivalent to a drinking cup of matcha.
